Dairy farms were the largest methane emitters per head (Around 40 gCH4/head/h). Results show that management practices might cause different methane emissions from dairy farms. Similar result was observed analyzing emissions from pig facilities (Around 6 gCH4/head/h), with an influence of animal life stage. The sow’s farm had the highest methane emission factor when
compared to fattening pigs, while manure acidification treatment might have a positive impact on reducing methane emission.
The successful application in this study of the TDM showed that this method is a valuable tool to support Danish farming strategies to meet ambitious GHG emission reduction targets.
